Yale defeated West Point last Saturday in a hard fought game by the score of 10 to 6, scoring all the ten points in the second half. West Point, using the forward pass to good advantage, scored a touchdown toward the end of the first half, from which Mountford kicked the goal. Throughout the first period, Yale was distinctly outplayed, and repeatedly the linesmen were thrown back by the more aggressive West Point forwards. Jones's work at quarterback was far below his usual game and his wretched handling of punts handicapped Yale severely.
In the second half Yale braced, and with Dines at quarterback kept the ball continually in West Point's territory. Alcott scored Yale's only touchdown on a blocked kick near West Point's goal line, from which Veeder kicked an easy goal. Just before the close of the half Knox made a fair catch on the 30-yard line and Bigelow kicked the goal from placement from a difficult angle.
